I been blogging for over 6 years. Crazy ups and downs! I honestly started as an… ugh “internet marketer.”
As an artist, it created a ton of conflict in me because I found most of the money-making tactics to be so sleazy.
All the money I made, I eventually stopped doing what it took to earn because I could never agree with it.
Today, I write what I want on Steemit and now Medium. It’s truly wonderful we get to write whatever we want and not compromise our art (that much at least.)
That’s my take. If you want to make a living from writing, write your best shit all the time, then apply basics in marketing. Just the basics.
